Francisco Ugarte at Cristin Tierney Gallery

The works in Three Lines, One Square revolve around one of the most basic concepts in art: the line. Created at different scales and on different supports, each is comprised of a single line placed squarely at the center of the picture field and rendered in a restricted palette of black. Although the works appear to be simple brushstrokes at first, they are actually highly finished and exact interpretations of earlier acrylic studies. Copied faithfully down to the minutest detail, the paintings transform the artist’s original intuitive and spontaneous action into an intentional and precise gesture.
